Fenerbahce aren’t successful in the Europa League this season. The team were drawing their matches against not that strong opponents. After 6 matches in the group stage Fenerbahce had 2 wins, 3 draws and 1 defeat. Such results allowed the team to gain 9 points and advance for the knockout stage. The Turkish side had beaten Lokomotiv Moscow in the round of 32 (3-1 on aggregate) and progressed to the next round.
Fenerbahce are in great conditions lately and they are on 5-game unbeaten run. Braga, in turn, lost their last match in domestic league 0-3. Bookmakers give slight advantage to the hosts of return leg, but it appears Fenerbahce can at least avoid defeat in this match. It’s unlikely the visitors will try to hold on the advantage and play defensively.
Prediction for the match: Fenerbahce draw no bet.
